Strawesome Review and Giveaway

I'm sure that we have all heard about the toxins that can be released from using plastic drinking straws.  I have friends who refuse to use plastic straws for that very reason.  Me?  I use plastic straws for just about everything, even with my coffee.  I can't even begin to estimate how many straws my family uses and throws away.


Strawesome creates eco-friendly glass drinking straws that are both reusable and beautiful.  They are unique, durable and decorative.  I absolutely love adorable bent "just for kids" straw I received, although I think it has officially become the property of my daughter.  She loves bendy straws and uses them daily.


These Strawesome straws are simply amazing!  I love the fact that they are wide enough to drink a super thick smoothie or milkshake through without having to fight for it!  These are also perfect for parties, each Strawesome is unique and different, so each party guest will easily be able to know which drink is theirs.



Strawesome carries glass straws of all shapes and sizes:
  • 6" Straws
  •  Decorative Straws
  • Skinny/Thin Straws  
  • Smoothie Straws
  •  Bent Straws
  •  Straw Sets
  • Many, Many More...



Here are some facts on these unique glass drinking straws:
  • Made of borosilicate glass tubing which is the strongest commercially available glass. This is the same glass that Pyrex® is made from.
  • Borosilicate glass is also non-toxic, so you can feel confident when drinking hot or cold liquids that no toxins are leaching into your beverage.
  • Annealed (slowly cooled to make it tougher and less brittle) so that it is dishwasher safe.
  • Beautiful yet functional. The decorative version allows you to distinguish which straw is yours and also stops it from rolling on flat surfaces.
  • Handmade in the USA
  • 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you don’t love your straw, send it back for a full refund.
  • Lifetime guarantee against breakage. If you break it they will replace it!

WIN IT:

 ONE lucky Being Frugal and Making it Work reader is going to receive a straw from the Strawesome “Artist’s Choice” collection!

Mandatory Entry:

Visit Strawesome and tell me what your favorite straw is.


This giveaway will end at 11:59 pm EST on Friday February 25th

This giveaway is open to US residents only. The winner will be chosen using Random.org, with the winner will be notified by e-mail. Please make sure I have a way to contact you. You can leave your email, or link to your blog site. The winner will have 48 hours to respond, if there is no response another winner will be chosen.



**I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free.  Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.  The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own.  Results may vary.  I was not compensated in any other way for this review.  The generous sponsor of this giveaway will mail the prize directly to the winner.  

A special thanks to Strawesome for this great review and giveaway opportunity!
